Or Boca Raton - I used to get people ramming my ankles with their grocery carts if I did not move quickly enough in line!

We have the complete opposite problem here. People back up like it was nothing. Intersections, the interstate, onto a busy road. There is nowhere these people won't back up.

I can't believe how that woman acted. I hope her kid doesn't pick up that type of behavior.

Here I don't have a car so I walk to the bank that's a few blocks from my ATM and walk through it. I get the people who are rude just because I'm in there on foot because apparently I shouldn't be allowed to get out money when the bank is closed if I don't have a car.

Hee hee hee!!! Short people ATM...or people in Honda Civics...I'm one of those. Even if I get right up to the ATM, I still end up having to stretch until my arm falls off...

I have had to use the drive-thru atm on foot a couple times, and you are so right! They are so rude if you don't have a car, lol.

Punkymom...half the time, I actually have to get out, because my arm doesn't stretch far enough.

8O

So if you need to get money out when the bank is closed you have to go to the drive-through? 8O How strange. I would think they probably would have the "regular" ATMs on the side of the bank?
That is a first for me, I guess if I saw someone standing without a car in front of the drive through I would think he/she was a criminal waiting for me to drive closer and rober me right at the ATM... not that you would do that, of course!
But here in CA that would be really unusual..

Happens all the time. While I was sealing a deposit envelope at the ATM one day... A car pulls up behind me and is theer maybe 30 seconds and hoks the horn at me. I look at the moron through my mirror as if to say "give me a sec to get my tongue off the glue". As Im getting my reciept for deposit (waiting on the machine) he honks again at me and I can see him making hand gestures through the mirror. I put my car in gear, drove out of his way, made a u turn to pull in behind him and "accidentally" pressed on my horn button the entire time he sat at the atm. An entire two blocks worth of people were wondering what all the noise was about.

I love it! I woudn't have done it because being a short female I am kind of a chicken, as far as giving people reason to attack me, but that is so great! I wish I was that brave.

There are all sorts of morons out there. I met a LOT of them in New York, must be the city stinky that makes people get in a bad mood.

But there was this one time, I couldn't believe. So we are parked in this parking lot, I don't remember exactly where -lots of open spots. We are leaving, so we walk to the car. This old mercury with oldies comes by, park exactly by our car, so close that they can't open the door to get out and neither can we to get in and go away. Then the old guy starts yelling to my then boyfriend (now husband): "Hey move your car!" We look at each other, thinking "What the heck?". Then, very rudely, the old guy yells "You are parked over the line!!"

Great. We are parked over the line because all of the other cars are parked over the line as well, and we wouldn't block THEIR doors.
But there is always a moron that can't see beyond the obvious.

Gosh that was the one time I really wanted to beat the crap out of old people. Really. Instead we set outside, waiting for them to go park elsewhere. Too bad we needed to catch a plane, otherwise we probably would still be there waiting for one of them to go into comatosis.

What is wrong with these people!!!
